Gosho 佐渡御書 Letter from Sado

破戒・無戒を(そし)持戒(じかい)正法(しょうほう)(もちい)ん世には諸戒を堅く(たもつ)べし

In an age when people honor the observers of the precepts and the practitioners of the correct teaching while they denounce those who break or ignore the precepts, one should strictly follow the precepts.

If one is living during a time when those who violate the precepts or do not observe the precepts are censured, and those who follow the precepts and practice the correct Law are held in esteem, then one strictly should comply with the precepts of the age.

儒教(じゅきょう)・道教を以て(しゃっ)(きょう)を制止せん日には道安(どうあん)法師・慧遠(えおん)法師・法道三蔵等の如く王と論じて命を(かろ)うすべし、

In an age when Confucianism or Taoism is used to suppress Shakyamuni’s teachings, one should risk one’s life to remonstrate with the emperor, as did the Dharma teachers Tao-an and Hui-yüan and the Tripitaka Master Fa-tao.

On the other hand, when a sovereign tries to oppress Buddhism by giving special priority to Confucianism or Taoism, one should protect to the ruler, even at the cost of one’s life, just like Priest Daoan, Priest Huiyuan, the Tripitaka Master Fadao, and others.

釈教の中に小乗大乗(ごん)(きょう)(じっ)(きょう)雑乱(ぞうらん)して明珠(みょうじゅ)()(りゃく)牛驢(ごろ)の二乳を(わきま)へざる時は天台大師・伝教大師等の如く大小・(ごん)(じつ)(けん)(みつ)(ごう)(じょう)に分別すべし、

In an age when people confuse Hinayana and Mahayana teachings, provisional and true teachings, or exoteric and esoteric doctrines, as though unable to distinguish gems from tiles and stones or cow’s milk from donkey’s milk, one should strictly differentiate between them, following the example of the great teachers T’ien-t’ai and Dengyō.

When the people are totally confused between Mahayana and Hinayana Buddhism, and between the Lotus Sutra and pre-Lotus Sutra teachings as if they could not distinguish the difference between a shining gem and a pebble or between cow’s milk and donkey’s milk, then one should clearly judge the superiority of Mahayana over Hinayana Buddhism, the Lotus Sutra over the pre-Lotus Sutra teachings, and the exoteric over the esoteric teachings, just as the Great Teachers Tiantai and Dengyō did.
